    4 BBL Carb Conversion

    Runs only in "Start" Position

    All of a sudden my old reliable 882 won't stay running in the "on" position of the key. It will start and run in the "crank" position but as soon as you release the key to the "run" position it shuts right off. Any help appreciated.

    Priming T/C Oil Pump

    I am trying to prime my transfer case oil pump, following the instructions in the TM. I can pull a steady flow of oil through with a suction gun but all I can get by manually actuating the pump is a dribble. Is this normal or should I be able to get a steady flow manually? Thanks
